Module 1 – Case
Welcome, Learning Theories, & the Benefits to Higher Education
Welcome to the Module 1 Case Assignment, the theoretical assignment for the module.
As stated in the SLP assignment, we try to make the Case Assignment a theory-based assignment, and the SLP the practical application-based assignment. Now that you are working on the Case Assignment, review some theories pertaining to learning and how individuals learn. If you have not already done so, review the Andragogy and Learning Styles information on the background page of the module. There are two parts of this assignment:
- Take the VARK Learning Style inventory to determine what type of learning style you have. Save the results in a Word file and upload to the Additional Files – Module 1 Dropbox.
- Address the questions below in a 2- to 3-page paper after completing the above assessment:
- What is your VARK learning style and how does it relate to at least two different learning theories?
- As an adult learner, how will your identified VARK learning style affect your educational pursuit?
Once complete, save your paper and upload it to the Case 1 Dropbox.
Write a 2- to 3-page paper addressing the two above questions. The paper should be double-spaced, with Times New Roman 12-point font. Cite at least two different sources. (Helpful Hint: The learning styles instrument you use can be one cited source.)
As with your SLP assignment, start with some brainstorming and then organize your thoughts by outlining your paper.
Your paper should have an introduction (stating the main point or thesis of the paper), a body (supporting the main point using three or more supporting points), and a conclusion (restating and summarizing what the paper was about).
